Graduate Retraining Scheme

Datuk Dr Fong Chan Onn, the Human Resources Minister informed the press that there will be another RM30mil allocation from the Government to retrain 8,000 unemployed graduates under the next phase of the Graduate Retraining Scheme, which is already in process and will be expected to start within the next three months.

He added that so far 21,000 graduates have been retrained under this scheme by the Human Resources Ministry through Pembangunan Sumber Manusia at a cost of RM140mil.

The purpose of this retraining scheme is to prepare the graduates for the job market and 74% of the 10,000 graduates who have completed phase one have already obtained jobs. This is evident that graduates do need special skills like computer skills and better command of the English language in order to secure jobs.
